Subject Re: Complex Script Support
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2011 10:51:20 GMT
I am pleased to let you know that Glenn Adams updated his work with a
new patch. This patch includes the following:

* bug fixes
* new layout engine tests for right-to-left writing mode
* new test utility for using TTX files in testing advanced typographic tables
* new test cases for GDEF/GSUB/GPOS advanced typographic tables
* new test cases for ~85000 arabic word forms against four fonts
* new implementation of number formatter for number to string conversion, which adds support
for arabic, hebrew, thai, and kana scripts

See milestone "Patch 5" at http://skynav.trac.cvsdude.com/fop/report/6 for
further details.

The update has been imported into FOP's code in the
Temp_ComplexScripts branch. The new code is available at the URLs
cited below.

With this patch, Complex Script Support for FOP now supports
* Arabic, Hebrew, and Devanagari Scripts
* PDF output format

Support for
* additional scripts
* additional output formats
remains to be done.

The current state of complex scripts support has been proposed for
merger into the main development trunk, subject to appropriate
evaluation and verification by the FOP community.

You can download the binary distribution or the fop jar file from
http://people.apache.org/~spepping/.

You can check out the source code from FOP's subversion repository,
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/fop/branches/Temp_ComplexScripts.

You can follow the work at FOP's Bugzilla, bug nr. 49687,
